MYFutureJobs Briefing by PERKESO

The Ministry of Human Resources (MOHR) recently issued new guidelines on the requirement to advertise expatriate positions via the national employment portal MYFutureJobs. This affects the hiring of expatriates beginning 1st January 2021 and overrides the previously issued guidelines released on 1st July 2020 by the MOHR.

To support our members to better understand the new requirements, AMCHAM held a webinar this morning, November 17 and the briefing was conducted by Gayathri Vadivel, Head of Employment Services and Andreas Charles Akobiarek, Strategic Initiative and Disability Employment Unit Lead,  from Pertubuhan Keselamatan Sosial (PERKESO). Due to the importance of this topic, we had a good response from our membership despite having less than 48 hours to notify members. Our guest speakers were able to go in detail into the functions of the MYFutureJobs platform, how the application process works, key features and get feedback from attendees.

This was a very informative session with a lot of questions coming in from the audience. It was also helpful for our member companies currently employing expatriates as well as those planning to hire expatriates in the near future.

Thank you to Gayathri Vadivel and Andreas Charles Akobiarek for taking the time of their busy schedule to provide clarity to our members on MyFutureJobs.
